Viking VI SE auction raises $30,000
Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, again provided a new Special Edition (SE) Viking VI Side-by-Side (SxS) vehicle to the SEAL-Naval Special Warfare Family Foundation (NSW) for auction at their annual fundraiser near San Diego, Calif. The Assembled in USA Viking VI helped raise $30,000 towards the organization’s mission of supporting SEAL members’ families. This marks Yamaha’s third consecutive year of backing NSW, raising more than $70,000 in funding for the much-deserved recipients.
The SEAL-Naval Special Warfare Family Foundation is a San Diego based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2008 that raises awareness and funds for special programs in direct support of the NSW families on a local, national and global scale. Further details about the NSW organization and fundraiser can be found at SEAL-NSW Family Foundation Home and SEAL-NSW Family Foundation | Offering assistance to the Families of Naval Special Warfare..
“Yamaha is honored to continue its support of the SEAL-NSW Family Foundation going on three years now, especially considering their important mission,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group marketing manager. “With the funds raised by the auctioned Viking VI SE going toward assisting the SEAL-NSW families who sacrifice so much for our freedoms, we hope the event and donor support continues to raise awareness for this respected organization.”
“Yamaha’s vehicles have been very popular in our auction the last few years, bringing in more than $70,000 for SEAL members’ families,” said William R. Fenick, CAPT, USN (Ret), Executive Director for SEAL-NSW. “We are dedicated to supporting the needs of these important families, and partners like Yamaha allow us to provide the right programs.”
In addition to all of the great features of the Yamaha Vikings, the 2016 Viking VI SE is available in a high-quality Carbon Metallic painted bodywork with aluminum wheels, a soft sun top, mud flaps, over fenders and under seat storage, all at an MSRP of $14,999.

Read more about the SkyRunner Flying UTV Review + Video at ATV.com.
We take to the skies in a UTV that flies
is a term thrown around a lot every time a manufacturer introduces a new vehicle platform to the market. Typically that translates into a boost in horsepower and more suspension travel. But a flying UTV takes next level
to the next level. That’s what SkyRunner LLC has accomplished with its new vehicle platform dubbed the SkyRunner, which cleverly combines the worlds of aviation and off-road into a single, multipurpose and action packed adventure vehicle.
Is it an aircraft or an off-road vehicle?
Well, it’s both. Technically speaking, the SkyRunner is an FAA approved light-sport aircraft that is classified as a powered parachute. We know what you’re thinking; visions of small, tricycle-like machine’s with large props on the back that are capable of flight but really serve no purpose on the ground are probably filling your head. The SkyRunner is not that at all. In fact, where it might be appropriate to view it as an aircraft that can also venture off-road, we would argue that it is much more of an off-road vehicle that just so happens to fly.
For that reason, limiting weight was a huge concern in the design process and that translates into a trimmed down figure that would almost appear naked compared to the current crop of UTVs on the market. Carbon fiber body paneling dresses the 4130 chromoly chassis and lends to a sort of James Bond meets Xander Cage look. The cockpit, with its array of gauges, display’s and switches might seem a little overwhelming at first, but when you consider the SkyRunner has two separate control systems, there is some method to the madness.
